      Hello, I used to post here years ago when I was first diagnosed with Graves Disease. That was 11 years ago. I had a thyroid extinto after being unable to take anti-thyroid medication since caused my liver enzymes to be at 8 times the normal level being only on 5 mg of Tapazole I think it was (generic). Anyway, the thing that just won’t go away after all these years is bad sleep and anxiety which has gotten worse. My sleep is interrupted bc I wake up, and I often have bad dream or vivid ones. I can’t handle negative or positive stress. It’s getting pretty bad. I have tried supplements and even prescription anti-depressants that are supposed to help with sleep and anxiety. None really good bc of the side effects. L-Theanine is the closest I’ve gotten to something that kind of works. I’m just frustrated. I feel like I have to stay home and do nothing if I want my sleep and anxiety to be in check. Does anyone else suffer with this or has suffered from this after thyroidectomy? I take Synthroid. My doctor won’t prescribe Armor. I tried 1/4 of a 5 mcg of Cytomel with my Synthroid, but I went hyperthyroid on it after a week. I just want to sleep and feel well and not have anxiety. 🙁
